MMIC & Border Observatory submission to Modern Slavery bill
In response to the Federal Government's introduction of a Modern Slavery Bill in Australia, academics from the Monash Migration and Inclusion Centre and Border Crossing Observatory recently prepared a submission to the Senate Standing Committees on Legal and Constitutional Affairs.
The Modern Slavery Bill, currently being debated in parliament, will require entities above a consolidated revenue threshold of $100 million to report on modern slavery risks in their global supply chains. The Bill aims to increase transparency around slavery and exploitation issues for consumers and investors, and improves workplace anti-slavery practices by holding businesses to account.
